Fundraiser for Missing Barista Brings Hundreds
Intention is to keep Samantha Koenig in community’s thoughts
ANCHORAGE - It has been nearly a month since Samantha Koenig went missing, and Saturday friends and family held a fundraiser to help continue her search.
Hundreds of people showed up to Top Hat Studio in East Anchorage to help raise money for the Samantha Koenig reward fund.
There were several performances by dance groups, and members of the local rock band Static Cycle also showed up.
Organizers say today’s event was an effort to help keep Samantha in the spotlight.
“Just trying to get the word out, get Sam’s face back in the news, get her back up on number one, and get her home,” said family friend Michelle Tasker.
If you have any information on Samantha Koenig’s disappearance, you’re asked to contact APD at 786-8900.
